Blockchain, a distributed ledger technology, has attracted many attentions to enable a decentralized and safe wireless networks for various applications. Considering the high density of nodes and the massive service requests in next-generation wireless network will result in a surge of blockchain forking, this paper proposes a Block Access Control (BAC) approach to address forking problem and transmit block effectively while improving transaction throughput and saving computational power. Then, using a Markov chain model, we analyse the performance of a wireless blockchain network by involving the effect of BAC approach. The results show that the BAC approach can help the network to achieve a high transaction throughput while addressing forking problem.
